the hospital stay: part 4

Some of the last sketches from the hospital, before we were given permission to spend a night at home.... the final stretch towards recovery and discharge.

During my daughter's stay at the hospital, I received a hand crafted Christmas card from a relative, a writer. Accompanying her beautiful lino-cut print was a note, part of which read: "What I do know about art, though, is that its practice is a form of devotion. And this act of devotion is deeply restorative. When I make these cards, I think of God..." I've had the privilege of experiencing just that this Christmas, and I am grateful.
